First Tent City After Dark Whiskerino Contest

The Colony Days Committee is bringing back the Whiskerino Contest, which has been held many times in the past. The Whiskerino is not a timed-growth facial-hair competition. Rather, it’s a showcase and celebration of all things whiskery. We seek anyone who can grow facial hair of any kind–short or long, neat or messy. It is open to all ages and is family-family.

Prizes will include a $50 cash prize and gift basket, as well as drink tickets and more.

Judging categories are:

  • Full Beard (dark, blond, white, salt and pepper, red)
  • Most Unusual Beard
  • Beard-Burns
  • Best mustache
  • Best overall beard
  • Teen 21 and under

Whiskerino contest schedule

  • 4:30 p.m.: DOORS OPEN & Slacker registration ($5, no drink ticket)
  • 5:15 p.m.: Pre-judging
  • 5;45 p.m.: The first Annual Tent City After Dark Whiskerino Contest begins
